Hello, I've been a reader since 2013'ish. I tried to join in 2014, but for some odd reason I could never get the email needed to activate. I even sent a message to the moderator but never received a reply. This is probably the longest board that I have consistently followed as the topics and discussion is the only thing that I could find that sparks my intellectual interests. Plus, with the knowledge I have gained I've been able to help friends and family with their decisions regarding higher education and ultimately save a boat load of money. To the moderator, is there something you can do with my account so my posts are seen right away. I've posted replies to a few topics and by the time my post is approved the discussion is an old topic. I also had an issue replying to a PM (my assumption) due to the same posting problem. Anyways, I'm glad to have finally made the transition from lurker to peanut gallery member.
